This is something that I made when I had a bunch of ingredients left over from a curry dish I cooked the night before. It is certainly a hearty dish, best served as a main meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot, saute the tomatoes, onion and garlic in the hot oil with salt and pepper until the onion softens and the tomatoes begin to pop open, about 5 minutes.
  2. Put the vegetables in the pot. Once all the vegetables have softened and sauteed, about 5 minutes, add more salt and pepper to taste and the thyme and cayenne pepper. Drain the tuna and add it to the pot as well.
  3. Stir the pot and add the water. Once the water has come to a boil, add the the rice. Lower the heat to a simmer, cover the pot and cook until all the water has been absorbed, about 45 minutes.
  4. Serve warm as is or with parsley and/or a dollop of sour cream.
